Fall is— meeting old friends in the excitement
of a new season together,
the tempo hastened by the briskness of the air
and the crunch of new fallen leaves beneath
our feet-of broken shouts of laughter
from people caught up in the spirit of competition.
The mood is quick as water
racing swiftly ahead of the coming cold.
^'n^^B mm M ^
"^^^IB^^BP: Jl^' JRp»^
The hush of new fallen snow
invites everything to come inside.
It creates a silent world
for endless hours of study—
thoughts turn inward for moments of
You listen plaintively
to the melancholy notes of a guitar
as you sit nestled in the warmth and glow
of a crackling fire.
The spring rain washes the world clean
and puts sparkles on the flowers in your back yard.
And you have a new suit made out of pink blossoms
for the school prom. Sitting on the grass
with the sun warm on your shoulders
you're thinking about the baseball game-
anxious to feel the smoothness of the bat in your hand,
hoping to barely make it home by sliding— smiling
as the dirt and gravel scratch and brush at your skin-
and you don't mind, it's spring.
Relieved that your last exam is over,
you've cleaned out your locker
saving that ragged note from your special friend.
A little sadly you said good-by and best wishes
to the graduates. Tomorrow,
you'll head for the pool and spend the afternoon
dreaming of all the things you want to do during
the long and lazy summer that stretches out ahead.

BRIEF GLANCES 72
In the 42 years that Mr. Thomas has been a part of the Thompson Community, he has
given something to our school which cannot be measured. He has given himself!
His devotion and belief in this school can be felt by everyone. His responsibilities here
at Thompson Academy are many: First and foremost is his position as Assistant Head-
master. As Mr. Wright's advisor, he lends his wisdom and experience to the operation of the
school. As Athletic Director, Mr. Thomas is the man who instituted varsity sports as a part
of Thompson's program. When he first came to the island, there were only intramurals, and
the fields that the players had to use weren't very satisfactory.
Mr. Thomas is also the Industrial Arts Teacher. It was he who raised the funds to
purchase the modern equipment that is in his classroom. Another of his jobs is acting as
Head of Grounds. One can easily spot his love for Thompson Academy by the way he
meticulously sees to it that every inch of ground on the island is taken care of properly—
from supervising the raking of leaves in the fall to keeping the students off of the athletic
fields when it is raining.
Aside from having these many responsibilities, Mr. Thomas has also been married for
thirty -five years and has seen his son through Thompson Academy. This is the kind of man
to whom we dedicate our years at Thompson Academy.

If ever there was a "behind the scenes" man, it is Mr. Baxter. He spends his time
quietly making business calls and buying the much needed supplies to keep Thompson
Academy going. In addition to his being our purchasing agent, Mr. Baxter is also the head of
buildings and the Administrative Assistant to the school.
There must be something that he likes about the school because he has been here for
It's good to have this man around. He is always there when you need him, and he is
another one of a certain group of people who have helped to make Thompson Academy
what it is today. For this, we would like to show our appreciation to you, Mr. Baxter.

The members of the Class of 1972 would like to set aside this Special Tribute in their
yearbook to a very special man. Mr. Kitching has been to us, a perfect example of complete
devotion— if such a thing can be put in common words.
When he first came to Thompson's Island in 1928, Mr. Kitching was in charge of the
poultry. For a long time his efforts provided the school with fresh eggs and meat. As the
school changed and grew, the chicken farm was used mainly as a source of experience to the
students of the Farm and Trade School— as the Academy was called then, Until 1963, when
the school was changed over to a predominantly college preparatory establishment, Mr.
Kitching had hatched up 2,000 chickens annually.
In his earlier years, Mr. Kitching was a very athletic man. He was a good tennis player
and he loved baseball the most. In fact, it would be quite wrong to say that he is not still
quite athletic. Aside from being present at all of our home games, he is also an avid
supporter of the Dartmouth Football Team. It is a rare day when he misses one of our home
In February, 1971, he lost his home in the tragic fire that destroyed our Main Building.
There have been many changes in the school since 1928, but, for Mr. Kitching, this last
experience was probably the most drastic.
Many people have come and gone at Thompson Academy during his years here, but we
hope that Mr. Kitching will remember us ... as we all remember him . . .
Wr. 8Jie Q. %U
When someone who has touched the hearts of people passes on, we feel a great sadness.
Mrs. Urie had made many friends, some of whom have come and gone over the past 21 years
here at Thompson Academy. Although she left behind her a daughter and a grandson, we
can't help but feel that we've suffered a tremendous loss. Those of us who have worked with
her have seen a remarkably energetic woman performing her duties without any complaints
or frustrations. Even more fortunate are those whom she called friends. Mrs. Champagne,
her close friend, must have been very proud to have known her. Mrs. Urie came to
Thompson Academy in 1950. Along with Mrs. Champagne, she was the dining room
supervisor for six years. In 1956 she became the laundry supervisor and had held that
position since then.
Mrs. Urie's absence will be felt for a long time to come at Thompson Academy.

The Sea Hawks of 1971 brought pride and spirit back to the gridiron of Thompson Academy.
The success of this team is not truly measured by their 3 win 4 loss record. Their taste for victory
had been smothered by the loss of every game last season. They had to put a lot of things together
this year and make them work. They did just that. The team rolled over Blue Hills 26-6 at
Homecoming, piling up 307 yards rushing and passing. In the Exeter game the Hawks rolled up
387 yeards rushing and passing for a 48 to 6 victory. Then came the Hyde game, the most exciting
and also the most heartbreaking game of the season. The Hawks poured their hearts and souls into
this one. They gave everything they had and more. With one touchdown called back and the loss of
another in the end zone, the Hawks made 322 yards rushing to Hyde's 290 yards, but the game
went to Hyde in the closing minutes of the contest— 26— 21. In the following game with Lawrence,
the Hawks were plagued with penalties preventing them from scoring on two occasions and for the
first time failed to score— 0—14 loss. Marionapolis came next and the Hawks went wild, rushing for
a phenominal 431 yards in a 56 to 6 romp. The last two games were rough ones. Against Tyngsboro,
the Hawks suffered several strategic injuries in addition to stakes and penalties, again preventing
them from scoring. At Winchendon, it was the lack of bench strength and injuries that took a great
toll. The team came back strong in the second half, but time had run out for the Hawks and the
game ended 32-7.

This year's Seahawk Soccer team had an incredible season. Under the superb coaching of Mr.
Donald Merry, the team's record was 7 wins, 2 losses, and 2 ties.
Some of the outstanding players were Derek Smith, who was the highest scorer and won the
award for "The Most Valuable Soccer Player." Kerry Hurley, the team's goalie, gave a performance
of fantastic speed and agility which won him the award of "Best Defensive Soccer Player."
Ferdinand Carengelo, who was not too far behind Derek Smith in the scoring department, was
awarded "Most Improved Player".
The forward line of the team consisted of Derek Smith, John Gallagher, Ulysses Harrell,
Nickolay Hersey, and Ferdinand Carengelo. These were the players that helped to keep the team on
The half-backs were Albert Moritz, Mark Stevens, and Ruben Colon. These three players
contributed greatly on both offensive and defensive playing.
The full-backs of the team were Kevin Shea, Robert Freschette, and our goalie, Kerry Hurley.
These players helped to keep us out on top of the scoreboard with unbelieveable defensive work.
Although we were much smaller than most of our opponents, we had enough speed and desire
to win— and our record proves this.
Leaving us this year are two Seniors: Kerry Hurley and Ruben Colon. We will miss these two
We always had constant support from our bench— even when we were losing, or down a point
We here at Thompson Academy believe that next year's Soccer Team will be just as good, or
even better than this year's— mainly because so many of the Lettermen are returning next year.

This year, varsity went through a building process. Only four seniors were on the 13 man
squad. With the playing time and experience gained by the underclassmen, Thompson will be
"Tourney Bound" next season with the help of a big man, highlight of the season, Louie Floyd,
scoring a basket at the buzzer to beat P.C.D. 55-53.
The two strong showings against a much bigger St. Andrew's Team: Chuckle Smith scoring 28
points in a winning cause against Roxbury Latin and then 36 points in a losing cause against St.
This year's starting team featured Co-Captains Chuckle Smith and John DelValle. Center,
Marvin Coble, and guards Louie Floyd and Bill Reynolds. The next three were considered starters
too and contributed greatly to the team's success: Glenn Scott, Bob Dozier, and Mark Stevens.
The team couldn't have done without the following members also: Jim Seaman, Paul Seaman,
Tony Longo, Mark Williams, and Mike Munn.

This year hockey was besiedged by many problems. Aside from having only four seniors on the
team, the group lacked the general experience that was badly needed. Being a young team, they did
not have the cohesion of a veteran team.
Although the season wasn't particularly good, the team held its own. It must be admitted that
this year was the beginning of a better team. If most of the players return for the next season,
Thompson Academy may well be on the road to the building of a very powerful squad.
